Team building is what we do best!
Here at Race the dragon, we believe that the key to a successful business is having a happy office environment. We help organise hundreds of events across London for a variety of different companies small and large. Developing employees as ‘people’ is a critical activity for the success of your business.
Corporate Dragon Boat Racing Events
The ultimate team building experience
Team building is about understanding, appreciating, developing and maximising the people in your team, and also the team as a unified group. Our team building events help your employees to focus on the importance of team work and what is needed to make them a better team. Learning how to work together effectively will create efficiency and knowledge on how to manager each other’s strengths and weaknesses whilst creating memories that bond and ignite perfomance. Whatever your objectives, we have the perfect solution for your team’s event.
Our corporate dragon boat racing days have become one of the fastest growing corporate sports in London. This unique sport is exciting, adrenalin pumping, and highly addictive! Our team building events offer a unique opportunity for your employees to escape the office and boost morale whilst encouraging and enhancing key abilities.

What Your Event Includes
What we can offer for a great event
If you have no experience of dragon boat racing dont worry your in good hands as full training and safety briefings will be provided on the day. A minimum of 22 people are required for each event, with a maximum of 1,000 plus people for the larger events that we offer.
Each event consists of a number of teams, ranging from 11 – 17 people per team. Each team has a drummer, to beat a steady rhythm and therefore an odd number is required as your team will need to designate one person to do this very important job! Events range in size from 2 teams (22 people) to 60 teams (1,020 people) per a one day event, (subject to venue suitability).
Each team has a minimum of 2 races, where they will race against other teams over a 200 metre race course. The fastest teams go through to the Grand Final.
The winning teams will be awarded with specially designed Dragon Boat medals and the winning trophies!
